Nightline Special - Black Market for Counterfeit Goods Rakes in $500 Billion Yearly  Nightline embeds with LAPD to cover counterfeit case and problem in California. Trade groups claim criminals steal copyrighted material worth half a trillion dollars every year. Counterfeit goods account for nearly 10 percent of worldwide trade, an estimated $500 billion annually, according to the World Customs Organization. "There's more money made on counterfeit goods than narcotics," according to one LAPD officer. The front line in the fight is at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, the biggest in the United States. More goods come through these ports than all other major American ports combined, approximately 40 percent of all maritime cargo. That's because this is the first stop for almost everything the U.S. imports from China, Japan and Korea. (Source

Worn and Returned: The Truth About 'Wardrobing' - More coverage on Bloomingdales new "b-tags"  Who exactly are the biggest wardrobing offenders? It seems there's no one-size-fits-all answer. But what drives our desire to try and beat the system? Social pressure may be one factor. Prabhakar says that the state of the economy also plays a factor in wardrobing. "Stores saw a spike in wardrobing during the recession when people weren't spending as much but still had events to attend and interviews to go to," she explains. "You usually see a spike in wardrobing during times of economic downturn." It's technically illegal, but the problem is there aren't any real [legal] consequences," says Prabhakar. "And it's difficult to tell if someone has only worn a garment once." According to the National Retail Federation's 2012 Return Fraud Survey, which was completed by loss prevention executives at 60 retail companies, nearly two-thirds (64.9%) of retailers said they were victims of wardrobing last year. It's not just retailers who suffer from the negative effects of wardrobing—shoppers can also feel an impact in the form of stricter return policies. Bloomingdale's is one major retailer who is reacting to wardrobing with a pretty drastic measure. The store is now attaching "b- tags"—bulky, 3-inch black plastic tags—to dresses retailing for $150 or more. The tags are cleverly attached in places that are difficult to hide when the item is worn, such as on the front bottom hemline, and items returned without the b-tags will not be exchanged or refunded. "These b-tags are in place to reinforce the fact that Bloomingdale's will be unable to accept a return of merchandise that has been worn, washed, damaged, used and/or altered," a Bloomingdale's spokeswoman tells us.

Retail Whistleblower to get $309,687- former traveling pharmacist - Kmart Corporation to Pay U.S. More Than $2.5 Million to Settle False Claims Act Allegations for Partially Filled Prescriptions  Kmart Corporation has agreed to pay the United States and 32 participating states a total of $2,550,000 to settle allegations of false prescription claims by its national pharmacy centers to government health insurance programs, U.S. Attorney Barbara L. McQuade announced today. Kmart is alleged to have violated the False Claims Act by billing government health care programs (Medicaid, Tricare, and the Federal Employee Health Benefits Program) for all drugs included in a prescription when, for many prescriptions, it dispensed only a portion of the prescribed drugs. Although billed in full to the government health care programs, the remaining portion of the prescriptions were never dispensed to beneficiaries and were later returned to stock. A portion of the settlement amount will go to Mark Kirsch, to settle the qui tam or “whistleblower” complaint against Kmart Corporation. Kirsch, a former Kmart traveling pharmacist who filed the action in Detroit in the Eastern District of Michigan, will receive $309,687. (Source

Calif. employers must make security accommodations for domestic violence victims starting Jan. 1  Employers will be prohibited from discriminating against victims of domestic violence and will be required to make reasonable accommodations in the workplace to protect them under a bill signed recently by the Gov. The new law bars employers from terminating or taking adverse actions against a worker based on his or her status as a victim of domestic violence, sexual assault or stalking. While the law will also require employers to accommodate requests such as changing a worker's telephone extension to protect against potential harassing phone calls at work, it does not require any accommodations that would create an undue hardship on business operations.

Law Enforcement and Retail Partnerships
Making a Difference in their Communities

Just another great example of partnerships that can truly make a difference in the communities around us.

Workplace Violence: Meeting the subject of a threat assessment: Is it always necessary?  We know it takes a team effort and a multidisciplinary approach to solve the complex problem of workplace violence prevention. All successful threat assessments require both information and conversation. We must know as much as possible about the subject making the threat and his or her intended targets. And we must be able to communicate with as many people as we can (with confidentiality in mind, of course) to ask questions, get answers, and develop our potential solutions. Threat assessment is a team approach in every respect, because the decisions either come from or affect so many stakeholders. So if we agree that threat assessment is a collective effort and that we must get information from multiple sources, it's time to answer a question that has been posed to security professionals: Can you do an accurate threat assessment without actually meeting the subject? The short answer is yes. Given my choice between meeting with a subject or not, my answer stays the same: it depends. Will my meeting with that person help or hurt? Will it make it more or less likely the person will act out? Does it make it better or worse for the organization and any current or potential victims? Can I do my best work on the edges of the situation or do I need to be hands-on? Editors Note; Great article and a must read! (Source

The waning era of the "big box" - smaller is better & urban is the place to be
From the announcements of just five Big Box retailers, anything from 1100 to 1350 big boxes could be shuttered over the next year or so. A pattern seems to be emerging, with growing retail buzz around how to make stores smaller, more selective, highly curated – in short, create a better customer experience. Due in part to the lack of availability of large spaces in prime areas and the speed with which a chain can get to market when it enters with a smaller store format. But we must also factor in the continued growth of online commerce – Internet pureplays which desire a brick-and-mortar presence, while current brick-and-mortar chains may find there’s less need for larger spaces as their online businesses expand.

Pirate Attacks by Heavily Armed Gangs Surge off Nigerian Coast
Pirate attacks off Nigeria’s coast have jumped by a third this year with ships passing through West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea, a major commodities hub, increasingly under threat from gangs wanting to snatch cargoes and crews. Unlike the dangerous waters off Somalia and the Horn of Africa on the east coast of Africa, through which ships now speed with armed guards on board, many vessels have to anchor to do business off West African countries, with little protection. This makes them a soft target for criminals and jacks up insurance costs. Data from the IMB, which coordinates the fight against maritime crime and malpractice, showed Nigeria remained the main source of piracy in the region with 29 attacks on vessels recorded in the first nine months of 2013, up from 21 in the same period last year.

WG Security Eliminating Wardrobing with the Seal Tag

Recently, news outlets such as ABC News, Bloomberg Businessweek, Yahoo!, Fox, and even the Daily Mail in the U.K., published stories about the new and exciting method Bloomingdale's has initiated to fight the scourge of wardrobing. According to these stories and citing the National Retail Federation, wardrobing is a form of fraud that cost retailers $8.8 billion last year. While Bloomingdale's is to be commended for an outside-the-box way to reduce shrinkage, what you don't know is that this revolutionary wardrobing prevention plan was a collaborative effort between Bloomingdale's and WG Security Products Inc., the California-based company that has developed a reputation over the last 15 years for innovative and original EAS technologies.

The device in use at Bloomingdale's locations throughout the nation to stop wardrobers in their tracks is the Seal Tag, available now from WG. It is not an EAS tag, but a one-time use device which is typically applied at the point of sale, to a noticeable area of the garment. Customers are instructed that removal of the Seal Tag voids any return policy. This prevents customers from wearing the garment for a day and attempting a return, therefore ensuring honest returns. The Seal tag is very easily removed by hand and once removed, cannot be re-applied. It can be personalized, with your business logo imprinted on the front, adding a degree of elegance. You can watch our video for more information about wardrobing and the Seal Tag.

If wardrobing is a concern for your business (and judging from the comments section of these stories, it should be), the Seal Tag is the answer for you. Contact for more information on the Seal Tag.

Repetition is one of the keys to success. Developing and evolving your approach, your message, your actions and processes and focusing on repetitively delivering them, you'll be able to almost transcend your message and focus on its delivery as opposed to its action. We all have core things we do every day and if you can develop repetitive responses, that ensures continuity, you can then begin to master what you do and truly make an impact on the group you're working with.
